Authentic Knowledge from Quran & Sunnah

Virtues and Blessings of Ramadan
Virtues of the month of rewards are known to most Muslims. The biggest of all is that Allah has said that fasting is for Him and He will reward it. He said, as reported in a Hadith Qudsee:
“…except for fasting which is only for My sake, and I will reward him for it.” [Al-Bukhaari, al-Fat’h, no. 1904; Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1/407.]

Amongst the many virtues of Ramadan, following are some of them:
Forgiveness of sins (sins that potentially are blocking Allah’s blessings in our lives)

Gates of heaven are opened (showing Allah’s bountiful blessings)

Gates of hell are closed (showing Allah’s mercy)

Devils are chained up (making it easier for Muslims to get closer to Allah)

It has a blessed night which is better than 1000 months (83 years and 4 months)

Quran recitation provides an opportunity of great rewards in this life and the…

Ayat ul Kursi  Quran (2:55) Ayat ul Kursi Quran (2:55)

Al-Bukhari recorded that Usayd bin Hudayr said that he was once reciting Surat Al-Baqarah while his horse was tied next to him. The horse started to make some noise. When Usayd stopped reciting, the horse stopped moving about. When he resumed reading, the horse started moving about again. When he stopped reciting, the horse stopped moving, and when he resumed reading, the horse started to move again. Meanwhile, his son Yahya was close to the horse, and he feared that the horse might step on him. When he moved his son back, he looked up to the sky and saw a cloud radiating with light that looked like lamps.

In the morning, he went to the Prophet and told him what had happened and then said, “O Messenger of Allah! My son Yahya was close to the horse and I feared that she might step…

Narrated Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
حَدَّثَنَا قُتَيْبَةُ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْعَزِيزِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ، عَنْ سُهَيْلِ بْنِ أَبِي صَالِحٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏“‏ لاَ تَجْعَلُوا بُيُوتَكُمْ مَقَابِرَ وَإِنَّ الْبَيْتَ الَّذِي تُقْرَأُ فِيهِ الْبَقَرَةُ لاَ يَدْخُلُهُ الشَّيْطَانُ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ صَحِيحٌ ‏.‏

Nothing is hidden from Him, His kursi extends over skies and earth , guarding the skies and earth does not make Allah subhana wa’talah tired. He is most high, He is most great, and He is the Ever living and Sustainer of all that exist.

Is it ok to breastfeed and fast?

all things alimentary

I asked my sister-in-law (mother to a beautiful 3 month old baby boy) if she was fasting this Ramadan. “Yes, I’m going to try, and see how it goes” she said.

Is that ok? Can women who are nursing their young fast? Won’t this affect the baby?

In accordance with Islamic teachings and tradition, breastfeeding mothers are allowed to be exempt from fasting during the month of Ramadan, in view that they would repay it at a later stage. There are, however, many mothers who may want to fast, but feel that they will be harming their little ones if they choose to.

This got me researching the science behind breastfeeding in those who choose to observe this month of fasting. I had a look at what the literature had to say on this topic; the general make up of breast milk, the affects fasting had on the nutritional value…

The nullifiers of fast

Marhaba Ya Mustafaﷺ

We will discuss the acts nullifying the fast under two categories:

  • Actions that require both Kaffara and Qada.
  • Fast-breaking actions that require Fasting as Qada only.

1. Actions that require both Kaffara and Qada.

It is a sin to break our fast or not fast without an excuse during the month of Ramadan. When we are fasting, if we break the fast knowingly, we must seek forgiveness of Allah due to this sin. As a penalty, we must fast for two months (kaffara) and one additional day to make up the broken fast.

Nullify fasts

2. Fast-breaking actions that require Fasting as Qada only.

Our fast can also be broken accidentally or due to an excuse. In this case, we only fast for those days that we have missed.

Some of the fast-breaking actions that require only qada (without kaffara) include:

Some of the fast-breaking actions that require only qada (without kaffara) include: 1. Eating or drinking does not break the fast if is…

Stop eating Suhoor (Al-Imsak) 10-15 minutes earlier than the time of Fajr ? – Shaykh ibn Uthaymeen

Authentic Knowledge from Quran & Sunnah

Stop eating Suhoor (Al-Imsak) 10-15 minutes earlier than the time of Fajr ? – Shaykh ibn Uthaymeen


Q. 429. We have seen in some calendars that during Ramadan there is a section called Al-Imsak. It is situated about ten minutes or a quarter of an hour before the Fajr prayer. Is there any basis for this in the Sunnah, or is it an innovation? Deliver a legal verdict for us and may you be rewarded.
A. This is a form of innovation, and there is no basis for it in the Sunnah. Indeed, the Sunnah contradicts it, because Allah says in His Mighty Book:
“. . .and eat and drink until the white thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread (darkness of night)” [1]
And the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said;
“Bilal makes the Athan at night, so eat and drink until…
